From 'Working Lives at Deep Navigation Colliery, Treharris': The photographer for the Bristol and Bath based postcard firm of Viner's, often attempted to get as close to the heart of the surface workings of the collieries he covered, as was possible. A number of interesting and detailed views of Gloucestershire and South Wales pits were taken during the 1920s, including this one of Deep Navigation. A slight foreshortening effect by the camera has merged the two headgears into one in actuality, No. 2 shaft is nearest to the photographer. The viewpoint is thought to be from the top of the power station roof, newly opened in 1921. Bob Marrows Collectioncover illustration
